Clarkton School of Discovery takes top honors in bridge building

RALEIGH – Students from Clarkton School of Discovery took top honors in the annual Model Bridge Building Competition sponsored by the N.C. Department of Transportation and the Carolinas Associated General Contractors.

The two groups have hosted the event annually since 2000 to encourage students to develop math and science skills. Students work in teams, allowing them to also demonstrate critical thinking, problem solving, communication and research abilities. The teams were judged in four categories: written report, oral presentation, design drawing and model efficiency.

For finishing first, the CSD team received $500 for its school.
